MMORPGs shouldn't be considered "good hobbies" because they produce no tangible real value.

As soon as blizzard/ncsoft/any other video game company decides to shut down their servers you're left with nothing other than a huge time sink.

I know, I've been there.

mine are:
  • Golf
  • Reading
  • Workingout

I'm trying to get into rock climbing as well... I can't just mindlessly work out anymore.

Mine are weight lifting and playing bridge (for smart people, not just old people). Both can be cheap, although I personally have put a lot of money into them.

Time consuming? Yes. Inexpensive? Not so much.

running and masturbation comes to mind

oh, "controlled gambling" once in a while is fun too. Go to a casino with ~$200 bucks then when you're down to your last $25 go all in on other stuff and keep going all in until you break even (if you do).

+1 to cooking


Pool/billiards if you can find a decent place to play that isn't too expensive. Could join a league.

Martial arts (~$50 a month)

Learn to play an instrument

There are about a million games you could spend time learning and playing (Chess, go, scrabble, etc)

I'm building a decent library for not very much. When I have nothing to do I go to thrift shops and buy books. Feels good to find books like War and Peace for like a buck.

bushcraft/survivalist preparation.

I'm almost done preparing for a nuclear fallout. I have most of the necessary equipments to survive basics like earthquakes, hurricanes, and home invasion. You can spend a ton of time for basics like choosing a tent, a gun, backpack, water purification systems.....and this of course includes all the other suggested hobbies--cooking, fishing, hunting, sewing, first-aid, cabinetry, leatherwork, etc. skills you'll need to survive in the absence of government or steady source of food--which need to be learned individually. If you don't have money right now, then spend time learning. Read up on disaster scenarios and practice how you would go about it when the shit hits the fan.
